The Traveling in Hokkaido - The Traveling in Hokkaido A reason why I wanted to have this trip was to find myself. In the past, I tended to compete with others because I am a half of Japanese and Swiss. I could not accept this Identity which differs from any other boys and girls so that I tended to be against things and break things. Nevertheless, growing of my age changed me not to express myself in rebels but to train my body and soul. The only way I could admit my identity was to know who I am. Therefore, this traveling was the quest of my inner world....   [tags: Personal Narratives Japan Essays] 1154 words

Traveling With Children - Traveling With Children About four years ago a friend of mine guided me into a couple of chat rooms. The subject of the rooms had to do with sports. It was very strange how the other members of the community knew when you logged in or logged out. Sometimes the members would see that you were there but not participating in the "conversation". They would try to bring you into the conversation or come right out and ask you what you were there for. The conversations can go quite quickly so I had a hard time keeping up sometimes....   [tags: Parenting Internet Papers]

Traveling through the Dark - "Traveling Through the Dark" by William Stafford was published in 1962. This poem has no consistent line length; there is also no specific rhyme scheme.

I have found the same similarity between sounds in other lines also....   [tags: Poetry] 487 words
